CAPTAIN´S BLOG

Hi everyone,

I’m really pleased that we have been able to start playing golf again. It is great to see and hear the spirit of the Spike terrace returning. It is also good that the rules are being respected. Let’s keep up the good work and keep everyone safe.

I have set off on a quest to play with as many different members as possible. Please enter your name alongside mine on the competition sheets or, if you are not keen to play competition golf, please text me on 931654046 to arrange a game.

The first game of the interclub league is scheduled for May 4th at home, all being well. Together with Michael and Brian, I will be selecting around 20 players from which the team will be selected initially but please keep on your game as our target this year is to gain promotion back to Division 1. We already have several players in mind but I would encourage anyone who has a strong desire to be considered to contact me. 

You will see that Kelvin has posted on the website. What an achievement and what an inspiration.

I am really pleased that over 40 people have confirmed that they intend to go on my away trip to Montecastillo. I am pursuing the possibility of a deal on buggies and also researching visits to wineries and/or to the equestrian school where they train the Lusitano horses. There is only a small number of people interested in  coach transport and so I am looking into other arrangements.

Your Captain, Mary

HOPEFULY WE WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY GOLF NOW WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DELAYS DUE TO COVID BUT FOR THOSE WHO ENTER PLEASE BEAR IN MIND (ESPECIALLY IF TRAVELLING FROM ABROAD)  THAT MATCHES WILL HAVE TO BE PLAYED ON TIME AS OUR YEAR HAS BEEN CUT SHORT. IF WE HAVE ANY FURTHER DELAYS BEFORE THE SUMMER THE KNOCKOUTS FOR 2021 WILL BE CANCELLED. 

THE ALGARVE INTERCLUB COMMITTEE HAVE DECIDED MATCHES FOR THE 2021 SEASON WILL START IN MAY. WE STILL HAVE A COUPLE TO CONFIRM BUT MOST MATCHES ARE NOW POSTED ON THE INTERLEAGUE WEBSITE WHICH YOU CAN ACCESS ON THE LINK BOTTOM RIGHT.

THANK YOU MESSAGE FROM KELVIN WHITTAKER

Dear Mr Chairman, Captain Mary, Past Captain Brian, all other Past Captain’s, Committee members and Members of the Floresta Parque Golf Club,

I would like to thank you so very much for your support, encouragement and donation(s), for my recent “ 100k Pink Walk”, it is very much appreciated by myself and even more, I am sure by the Oncology Association of The Algarve.

I have received more donations this week, but I think we are approaching the final amount, so with combined website pledges and cash donations in both UK sterling and Euros the amount currently stands at €4,444, a figure I never envisaged reaching.

I know it’s not worthy of a knighthood, or a  statue somewhere along the N125, or even a Spitfire & Hurricane flypast, but believe it or not I enjoyed doing it, at least I did once the paracetamols had kicked in after the first 40 kilometres.

Am I crazy enough to do it again, ???

Once I have transferred the money to the charity, I will send you a copy of the transfer and receipt issued by the Oncology Association.

Muito obrigado

Best wishes,

Kelvin

SAD NEWS

WE ARE SAD TO ANNOUNCE THE PASSING OF DEREK HILL, FORMER MEMBER OF THE GOLF CLUB WHO LOVED HIS GOLF AND HE WILL BE SADLY MISSED. OUR CONDOLENSES ARE WITH JACQUELINE AND ALL THE FAMILY AT THIS SAD TIME.

GOLF UPDATE

Dear members

Just a few updates now we are up and running.

In accordance with the DGS Rui has informed us today that the golf course will have to close on weekends at 13.00h. For this reason, our club competition on SUNDAY the 11TH & SUNDAY the 18TH will be moved to MONDAY the 12TH and MONDAY the 19TH.

Also, we have decided temporarily as of MONDAY the 12th to move competitions back to 10 o clock until 12.30. Reason being that the shop closes at 18h which will give the staff more time to prepare the buggies ect for the following day. For those of you who enjoy the spike bar terrace, you may enjoy an extra pint or two. The sheets in the pro shop have been changed and all the entries remain so if you wish to change your tee time please do so.

We will update this information after the announcement on the 15th of April.

Extra day cards for Handicap purposes are permitted. Please be aware of the safety rules though when doing a card.

I have had great response to the Captains away trip so far. For those of you who have asked for more detail, I will update within the next week.

Many thanks and happy golfing

Mary, your Captain
